- Don't bring expensive items into school

What School Will Do
All children are entitled to courteous and respectful treatment by other pupils and staff whist at school. As a school we have the responsibility to ensure your child has a safe learning environment. With this aim, we will;
- Listen to what you/your child say
- We will support your child within the framework of our anti-bullying policy
- We will investigate what you have told us and then report to you what we have found out as a part of our investigation and what we have done to help your child.
- Engage pupils in prevention through the use of restorative practices, PSHE lessons, poster contests, surveys, have older pupils talk with younger pupils, assemblies, anti-bullying week and internet safety week
